Community Grant applications are due December 7, 2018.

Last year, the Junior League of Greenwich presented the Community Grant Award to Kids in Crisis in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich (BGCG). The grant was utilized to expand Kids in Crisis existing program providing “Youth Mental Health First Aid Training” to staff at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. The collaboration allowed Kids in Crisis to assist the Boys & Girls Club in supporting the growing need for
mental health services for the youth aged 6 to 18 that attend the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich.
